Importing Active Directory Users

  1. Log on to PolicyServer MMC.
  2. Set your enterprise as a top level group.
    1. Right-click the enterprise and select Create Top level Group.
    2. Specify the name and description for the group.
    3. Click Apply.
  3. To configure the synchronization policy, open the group and go to Enterprise Policies > Common > Authentication > Network Login > Domain Authentication > Active Directory Synchronization.

  4. Add the distinguished name for each OU you intend to synchronize.

    For each OU to synchronize, perform the following steps:

    1. Right-click Distinguished Name and click Add.
    2. In the Policy Value section, specify the OU by its sequence of relative distinguished names (RDN) separated by commas.

      Example: OU=TW, DC=mycompany, DC=com

    3. After specifying the OU distinguished name, click OK.
  5. Open Domain Name and specify the NetBIOS domain name that was used to configure the AD server.
  6. Open Host Name and specify the host name of the AD server.

    Synchronization between the AD and PolicyServer is complete. Synchronization automatically occurs every 45 minutes (this is the default synchronization interval used by Microsoft domain controllers). You may force synchronization by stopping and restarting the PolicyServer Windows service. Domain synchronization runs shortly after the PolicyServer Windows service startup occurs and then subsequently runs every 45 minutes.
